As I've always been a Tool Junky so a first hello seems appropriate here.
I'm living in Yorkshire and my main machine is a Myford Super 7, it's a Long Bed model with DRO and a custom head stock featuring taper roller bearings and giving me 30.5mm through capacity along with a native ER40 spindle nose. Front and rear QCTPs make for very convenient setups where turning and cutoff are required, I'm still finding new possibilities when turning batches of parts.
Thanks for adding me to your community,
Regards,
Nick

Sounds like a nice setup. It'd be great to see some picts.

Yes I'd say you have some tooling there-
Neat little lights did you make those?

Mark,
I'm afraid the lights are store bought GU10 reading lamps with daylight white LED spotlight bulbs fitted and bases removed.
Regards,
Nick
